Squeezed between the bark and the wood : A study of middle managers authority for decision making in the public sector (English)
Abstract [sv]

Många människor delar uppfattningen om att mellanchefsrollen kan vara problematisk då den är positionerad i organisationens mitt, klämd mellan ledningen och medarbetarna. Att ansvar och befogenheter bör befinna sig i jämvikt och inkluderas i chefsroller är även något som de flesta håller med om, men som vår studie förtydligar så är det dessvärre inte alltid fallet i verkligheten. Studien har även visat att det finns en stark koppling mellan synen på vår omvärld och dess karakteristiska drag, organisationsstrukturer och former, mellanchefsrollen och befogenheter för beslutsfattande.

Abstract [en]

Many people share the opinion that the role of middle management can be problematic due to that it is positioned in the middle of organizations, squeezed between the top management and the operative core. An equilibrium between responsibility and authority and that it should both be included in a management position is also something that most people find as logical, but our study clarifies that it is not always the case in reality. Our study has also shown that there is a strong connection between the perception of our environment and its characteristics, organizational structures and shapes, the middle management and decision-making authority.
